Project: Baton Rouge Wastewater Pump Station SCADA System (April 25th, 2006)
April 25, 2006
There are many things that can occur to disrupt a long-term project. One of them is personnel changes. During preceding years, the primary consultant lost its lead engineer and the end user lost its chief engineer. It's our turn now to break in a new project engineer. Fortunately, our former project engineer is available on a part-time basis to ease the transition, we have a ready replacement, and our project management system has a structured, distributed design.
We still have not been given the official word on who was selected as a vendor to provide the PLC and local HMI hardware, although we believe the City exerted its influence to stay with the same vendor they were using previously, despite some known technical limitations.
